Question about Olivetti Linea 198

Has any of you seen or tried on an Olivetti Linea 198?  For a long time, I thought it was only a concept as I had never seen it on eBay. Because it is one of the last typewriters that have been built so they should be everywhere on ecommerce websites. I'm curious about its bold print function. How is it made possible ? Does it work good?


  1. Bold print? I'm curious too.

  2. I wonder if by "Bold Print" they just mean it has touch control? Less ugly than the Linea 98 (which are so ugly and boxy I actually want one!) :)
